Organizations will serve professional needs of chief technology officers and chief application officers

The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) has announced it has launched of two new organizations to serve the education and professional development needs of healthcare executives in senior technology and application roles.

CHIME maintains that the Association for Executives in Healthcare Information Technology (AEHIT) and the Association for Executives in Healthcare Information Applications (AEHIA) are the first professional organizations representing chief technology officers (CTOs) and chief application officers (CAOs) in the healthcare setting. Formed to address an unmet need in the industry, AEHIT and AEHIA will provide educational resources on important healthcare technology and IT application-focused issues, as well as an environment where CTOs and CAOs can communicate with, inform, and educate one another. These follow the recent creation and launch of AEHIS, the Association for Executives in Healthcare Information Security to serve healthcare CSOs.

“With the establishment of these two new organizations, CHIME has taken an active role in providing these healthcare leaders an opportunity to pool their collective knowledge and advance their skills,” according to CHIME Board Chair Randy McCleese in a prepared statement. “CIOs are increasingly relying on leaders like CTOs, CAOs and CSOs in order to deliver and manage a complex technology environment, so collaboration among these highly-accomplished individuals is essential to furthering industry solutions and opportunities.”
